I think for various reasons that I can't really describe fragrances well, but my first test of Rien Intense Incense was so embarrassingly whimsical that I can't resist sharing this experience. And embarrassingly whimsical one could sometimes also connect a little bit with the brand EldO, which I do not necessarily mean negative.
Well, the highlight of the day was once again one of these usual, practical atomizer sticks, filled with Rien Intense Incense , which I had been looking forward to for a long time, in my mailbox. (Dear thanks to WoodyBree). Of course I pulled off the cap with curiosity and a bright, pungent, intense smell immediately surged towards me, although I hadn't sprayed at all. Oioioi, but he has a lot of horsepower, I thought to myself, put the cap back on again and regretfully postponed the test until later, as I expected an expert from the property management between 13 and 14 o'clock, who was supposed to inspect my bathroom in need of renovation. A nice, friendly person, whom I already knew from earlier repair work, and whom I naturally did not want to torture.
Time passed and as he was still not there shortly before 2 pm, I thought something had come up and he would either come much later or not at all. So I greedily grabbed the bottling and sprayed. Seconds later it rang. Oh dear, it shot through my head and, shoo, shoo, I quickly tilted all the windows of the flat and let him in.
Then I stopped thinking about the scent and we stood next to each other in my windowless bathroom, which of course had been scrubbed and freshly cleaned before, while he looked at the 27 year old, somewhat worn out sink and the bathtub and took notes. Suddenly I noticed his somewhat tortured expression on his face, and when he had to cough, a light came on me. Uh... I thought and stepped a few steps back out the bathroom door to take advantage of the draught. I mumbled something like "excuse me, something smells like incense" but he didn't reply. I hoped that the draft would save the situation and the inspection turned to the toilet (also carefully roughened and cleaned), the lid of which I always keep closed and which he looked at suspiciously. I was astonished that he didn't want to take a closer look at the thing, because a new one would cost the property management at least money. It fell like scales from my eyes, as at that moment a breath of perfume rose into my nose. With malice aforethought or a nasty nose, one can perceive an aspect of this incense like ammonia. And stale urine smells like ammonia. So he probably thought that someone had forgotten to flush his little shop away.
Well, what the hell, in any case I'm still looking forward to a new tub, sink and toilet bowl.
To the smell I try of course now also still something to write.
In the beginning my nose smells something very intense, something pungent, green, bright, incense. This incense phase lasts longer and when you inhale deeply, it really has something exhilaratingly spacy, radiant and you fly through a wide green space. I don't mind the possible minimal ammonia sound and you don't have to concentrate on it. Somehow I thought of Youth Dew in between.
Then it starts to change for me to something mentholigem, minzigem sometime. I also like that very much, except that sometimes it jumps a turn into the artificial. But even that may have something, although I personally don't like it that much. Later it changes to the spicy, leathery, woody one and I sometimes have to think a little of Au Cour du Desert. But sometimes that also changes to a sweaty, bitter side.
In the end something irresistibly sweet and resinous and spicy comes up for me, but sometimes it also jumps into the automatic chewing gum machine. Exactly this resinous, lovely note is also in my clothes etc. and I like it very much.
The scent is for my nose actually all the time a tightrope walk between being mainly attracted and fascinated and every now and then but also unpleasantly touched and annoyed.
Besides, my nose sometimes closes for a few minutes.
But on the whole I like Rien Intense Incense and find it very interesting because it somehow changes and jumps, jumps and flirts all the time. And it has a calming but also stimulating effect on me and envelops me pleasantly. I think it fits to a rainy day.
I put it on my wish list, but I'm not sure yet. I also think that it doesn't really look good on me, but I don't care anyway anyway.
In any case, there is more than enough in the tube to test further.
